Winner Wednesday: Popcorn Words Bundle: Dolch Primer

It is time for the second round of Winner Wednesday. This linky will take place the first Wednesday of every month. I will pick a popular product from my store and explain it in detail, with pictures. The best part of it all, is that YOU will have a chance to win that product for FREE. All you will have to do is enter your name to be entered into the Rafflecopter.  I was so honored that so many people participated last month. There were some amazing products that TpTers were giving away and I am so excited to see who links-up today.

I decided to choose my Popcorn Words Bundle: Primer Words for the giveaway this month. They are called Popcorn Words because these are words that often "pop up" when reading or writing. I loved using Popcorn Words to teach sight words because it made learning so much fun and aesthetically it made my classroom look inviting and cheerful. They are built in decorations that the students can use throughout the school year.

There are a TON of activities included in this bundle. It is huge and will provide you with bulletin board/sight word wall materials, literacy centers, assessments, and posters.

When I first introduce a group of words, I place these large popcorn words at the front of the room (or where you have calendar time) for the entire week. I either have them in a pocket chart or on the white board. We talk about them and do quick and easy activities every single day. On Friday, I take the words and add them to the large popcorn bag poster. Every week we repeat this. The popcorn continues to grow as the students learn more sight words. By the end of the year, the popcorn bag is busting at its seams and it looks so stinkin cute! I love having these large popcorn words on the wall because students can easily refer to them whenever they would like.

I had this set up by the classroom door. Every time we left our room, students would have to say a sight word to exit. Sometimes I just put a sight word on the poster and students would say that. Other times I held a stack of words and showed them to students as they walked out, flipping to the next word with each kid. Students also liked to take on this responsibility and play teacher. That was great because it allowed me to focus on the student behavior in the hallway or grab any last minute things I needed for wherever we were heading to.

All of the centers can be laminated and placed in their own tub with the specified tools. I will do a quick review of some of my favorite centers included in this product.  If you would rather kids sit at their desks and do these activities independently, you can simply print and have them use crayons or pencils instead.

This was my product for the previous Winner Wednesday. Click {here} to get more information about these mats.

Students will roll the dice and depending on what they roll, they will read a word under that number, then rainbow write that word. They can continue this until time is out or they have done every single word.

Students will chose a sight word and count how many there are in the box. They will then color the graph accordingly.

Using Play Doh, students will roll out the play doh to fit into each letter. The goal will be to have students spelling out the sight words.

These are great for centers and there is so much that you can do with them. Sometimes I would have students match the popcorn graphic with the popcorn bag graphic. They can also play memory using both sets. Other times I would just include one of the sets and students could rainbow write the words or build the sight words with magnetic letters.  The possibilities are endless.

In addition to the centers described above, these are also included in this product: 1) Build a Word, 2) ABC Order, 3) I Have, Who Has, 4) Dominoes, and 5) Word Sorting Mats. There is also a student assessment recording sheet for you to continuously check your students’ knowledge of the given sight words.
